Okay, let's look at one of the quatrains I've cited..
4 - 29
The Sun hidden eclipsed by Mercury
Will be placed only second in the sky:
"Of Vulcan Hermes will be made into food,"
"The Sun will be seen pure, glowing red and golden."
Could the "Sun" mean gold? No, because he describes the "Sun" as being "in the sky". It can't be the actual Sun either, because he says it's
hidden, and eclipsed by Mercury. So we have a "Sun" in the sky, but it isn't the actual Sun.
I've interpreted the "Sun" as Apollo, the Greek Sun god. The Apollo capsules were in the sky, so we have a "Sun" that fits the
Of course, the planet Mercury is too far away to hide the Sun from our view in an eclipse, unlike our much-closer Moon. So it's not the planet, nor
an alchemy symbol, since it too is an object in the sky.
But "Mercury" does fit as the Mercury space capsules, in the sky.
The Mercury space capsule went into a sub-orbital flight. Apollo went into low-Earth orbit, which is slightly higher than sub-orbit. Hence, the Apollo
capsule is "hidden" from view, "eclipsed" by the Mercury capsule.
So the first line fits perfectly.
The second line also fits:
Mercury was placed first in the sky (in sub-orbit). The Sun (Apollo) "will be placed only second in the sky" (in low-Earth orbit).
The third line refers to "Hermes". This fits perfectly as Gus Grissom. The alchemy interpretation - which has already failed in the first two lines
- is totally silent about Hermes. Because it doesn't fit into an alchemy interpretation.
So just ignore what you can't fit in!!!
Wrong. Everything has to fit in. Hermes can't be ignored. The Sun and Mercury have to fit the description as written.
I hope I've explained my point....
